    Hai all,

    Sorry to bother u'll,
    but i really need your help regarding my mini project.
    i really new with SPI and even i don't know about the SPI completely.

    so i hope u'll can guide me about this project.

    my project is using the mcu 8951 to pop-up the message "welcome" on 5x7 dot matrix led by using MAX6952 chip..

    You've asked for help but didn't ask a question. I suggest that you develop a schematic and post it here for comments, and ask specific questions. You'll get more help.

    sorry for my stupid question...
    new here...T_T

    ok..i will explain a bit about my problem here..

    i'm gonna use MCU 8951(nxp) and max6952 that can drive the 5x7 led using spi
    i already done some searching about it and what i found is max6952 is serial. so that's mean i need to use spi to send the data to max6952.

    the general idea about spi i already got it, but what i not sure here is how i gonna connect between MCU and MAX6952 and what i need to send because i really new with SPI.
    what i just understand is you need for 4 to control the MAX6952, and that's pin is CLK, DIN, DOUT, and CS.
